wearing a shirt as a skirt

9:30 am

My last three outfit posts have included wearing a dress as a shirt, a dress as a top and now a shirt as a skirt. This wasn't even intentional, maybe I could do a dedicated series, i.e. inventive ways to wear a shirt, what do you think?

This shirt was my dad's, and I hope he doesn't mind me saying on here, but this shirt is a XXL and in men's clothing I'm usually a small, but I have worn this shirt unbuttoned as a jacket and tied around my waist in the past, and today I transformed it into a skirt. Don't get me wrong, I'm not claiming to have invented this technique, and I bet I'm not the best at it. In fact if you looked it up on youtube I'm sure you'd find tutorials on how to do it neater, but all I did was button it up half way, tuck in the collar and tie the sleeves in a knot. Pretty simple.

Good vibes guys
